This riddle is from the book "The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma". It was written by Trenton Lee Stewart.

The answer to this riddle has a hole in the middle,
And some have been known to fall in it.
In tennis it's nothing, but it can be received,
And sometimes a person may win it.
Though not seen or heard it may be perceived,
Like princes or bees it's in clover.
The answer to this riddle has a hole in the middle,
And without it one cannot start over.

dude, that's like copyright infringement, I think you need to get permission from the author to do that.
